The most powerful impression this book left upon me is that Two-Spiritedness concerns action and not just labeling. Previously, I thought any gay person with some Native ancestry could call themselves Two-Spirit. This book, however, talks of how a legitimate Two-Spirit person would learn of their tribe's customs and dedicate themselves to helping others in the tribe. This promotion of communal action will impress Native heterosexuals, I imagine.
This book touches upon many issues that non-Native gay men and lesbians of color face.Read more ›
Again, the core content of the book gives an uncommon view of queer Native life; I just wish it had been handled a touch more delicately.
